About me

I’m a writer working in children's media with a background in preschool education and sketch comedy based in NYC. After writing for Hofstra university’s sketch comedy show and studying with UCB, I fell in love with children’s television and became a preschool teacher. I have always loved working with kids and finding the silly little things in life that make them laugh. In my writing, I combine my passion for comedy with my love of working with children to bring a little bit more joy into the world. If you would like to see samples of my writing, feel free to contact me!
